Sherese Kiveen Veronica Fortune

sherese-fortunebb: Hello Sherese. Nice to talk to you. Tell us about yourself...?

SF: I am 15 years old. I was born under the sign of Capricorn on 17 December 1988.

bb: what is your background?

SF: I was born in St Croix and came to Barbuda as an infant. I lived in Antigua for two years between the ages of nine and eleven when I attended Sunnyside Tutorial. I returned to Barbuda because I didn't like it over in Antigua. I have an older brother and three younger sisters.

bb: you attend the Holy Trinity School I believe

SF: Yes, I am in Form 3 with Mrs Sandra Mussington as my form teacher. My favourite subjects are art, science, home economics, and information technology.

bb: I hear that you are good at sport

SF: I am interested in sport, particularly basketball, tennis, and athletics. In my age group I always come first in athletics. In Barbuda I win all the distances, but I prefer the sprints to the long distances. I reached the finals of the 100, 200, and 400 metres in the Inter-School Championships in Antigua this year.

bb: and basketball ...

SF: I play for the New Era team in Barbuda. In December 2003 we competed in a tournament against Antiguan teams including Eagles, Wings, and Survivors and a team for Dominica. We reached the finals where we lost to Survivors, whom we had beaten in the earlier rounds.

bb: and tennis ...

Oh yes I love tennis. I played tennis at a summer school at the Coco Point Hotel and everyone was very impressed with my game. I am looking forward to the new tennis court being built in the village so that I can play some more.

SF: bb: do you have time for hobbies?

SF: In my free time I enjoy listening to the radio and lyming.

bb: have you advice for young people?

SF: I think young people in Barbuda should wait until they are older before they have sex because AIDS is a very big worry for us all.

bb: Thank you Sherese, we wish you well for the future.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
